I have an annoying firefox pop up which keeps appearing on the screen asking me to put in my Primary Password. I had forgotten my original password so I reset it. The pop up appeared again and I put in the new password and it didn't sign me in or disappear. What is wrong, how can I get rid of this as it appears every time I try to get on a web page and it is VERY ANNOYING!

Hi, Why do I get this error message with firefox when I either click a link in an email or type in directly on a new tab (this happens on multiple websites, not just this one). I can then open the same website in Chrome with no problem? How do I fix this problem? I know I need to upgrade to windows 11 and have tried several times, but it never works. Thank you. Debbi

I have had to change the Search Engine back multiple multiple times after changing to DuckDuckGo and removing the others!

Why does the system Windows 10, if that is the culprit continue to change it away from DDGo? I removed the Microsoft Edge File from my Computer. It used to be the one that replaced it!

Sync - I cannot for the life of me figure out the parameters of operation

After hooking up four devices to sync through Firefox, I ended up with a mess and a lot of irritation which I have not recovered from. That was six months ago. What I failed to understand is that there is no control of the direction of sync. I presumed that all would sync from my primary account computer. Wrong and truly a disaster because I had spent hours organizing thousands of bookmarks. An old computer with an old bookmarks setup (very disorganized) added its confused mess back into my attempt on the new computer to finally get organized. I still have not sorted through most of the mess.

So how in the hell does Sync actually and exactly work? Is there any directional flow? Or does it just mash the shared stuff together. How can I delete any bookmark file Sync has at Firefox server with exact knowledge of what I am doing? Why is this stuff so obscure? I exactly want to know how to ensure that Sync has no cache of obsolete material and exactly, if possible, to direct the flow....should I use only share a tab? one at a time?

Thanks, Michael Mandeville, Arizona mwman@q.com

Recently (within the last two weeks) I've noticed that my mouse cursor will randomly jump to the upper corner of my screen while viewing a page within Firefox. From my observation it's only happening within Firefox, and the only variable I can think of is that I started using containers to visually differentiate my tabs. I've since tried to revert back, but the problem persists.

I'm running a Surface Book (Gen 1) with dock and multiple monitors. If there's any additional information needed to better diagnose the problem I'm happy to supply it if it means finding a resolution.

I want to have two Firefox accounts. One for Work and one for home. On my account I was using one of my home email accounts as a primary and another home email as a secondary. I added my work email address and and made it the primary and removed my home address that was the original primary for this account. Can I now start a new account with that home email or will it not be available to use since it was once a primary for the other account?
